Anyone knows?

I hear so many stories but AFAIK the French Government/police wants everyone to have two "alcohol blow-pipes" in the car. Also tourists.. Fine is 180 Euro for not having them..

Anyone know the actual law in France?

Do we need them?

Thanks :up:

New laws will make the equipment compulsory for all cars on French roads from July 1, with anyone caught without the equipment facing an 11 euro (£9.20) fine.


Don't forget the warning triangle and high visibility jacket or vest that are already compulsory.
